Some­times it’s Let­ting Go that Makes us Strong: Sikka to Staff

The Economic Times - - Disruption: Startups & Tech -

Ben­galuru: In­fosys CEO Vishal Sikka told em­ploy­ees in an email that the com­pany should look to the fu­ture in­stead of hold­ing on to the past, at a time when it is bat­tling its founders over gov­er­nance is­sues, re­ports Our Bu­reau. “Re­cently, when I turned 50, an­other an­niver­sary, a great teacher of my life gave me a rare book of re­flec­tions by Her­mann Hesse. In it I found this one gem: Some of us think hold­ing on makes us strong, but some­times it is let­ting go,” he wrote. “The fu­ture is re­ally a con­struc­tion of now. A string of beau­ti­ful, mo­men­tous nows. We live with an il­lu­sion of per­ma­nence, but all we re­ally have is the now, with their beauty, their op­por­tu­nity, their chal­lenge, their ephemer­al­ity,” he wrote. Sikka’s let­ter did not men­tion the is­sues with Murthy and in the past he has at­trib­uted it all to ‘me­dia noise.’
